The internet makes it possible for independent leaders and creators to build their own base of support outside the traditional gatekeepers like political parties, publishing houses, film studios, etc. It’s a great opportunity, but now you have to deal with a slew of different technologies with new ones showing up every day. It can be quite overwhelming.
NationBuilder allows you to create a real and lasting foundation of support. User engagement and retention are at the core of the NationBuilder design. Encouraging users to take action, whether it be to comment on a blog post, attend a film screening, or call their Senator, builds grassroots support. Anybody can read a web page, but it is when people take that next step of action that they truly become a stakeholder and lasting supporter, who will recruit others to join.
Your supporters are out there, but they are dispersed and don’t all communicate the same way. With NationBuilder you can connect with them, and the more they get involved, the more their peers will want to get involved, and the more powerful all of you will become.
